New Toyota Supra to get Goodwood reveal

10 July 2018

Sports vehicle fans will get a taste of the performance potential of the all-new Toyota Supra when a production prototype makes its global debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.

The manufacturer confirms that the new Supra will stay true to its heritage with a straight six mounted up front, driving the rear wheels.

The teaser provides us with the clearest glimpse of the roadgoing model yet, which comes after the GR Supra Racing Concept that was unveiled in March this year.

More than that, Toyota has promised that the keenly-awaited new Supra will also be seen in action on the hill, in the hands of chief project engineer Testuya Tada and Dutch test driver Herwig Daenens.

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is the organisation which spearheads Toyota's global sporting programme and the development of exclusive, performance-focused, GR-branded road cars, including the recently introduced Yaris GRMN.

And while the thousands of motoring fans that attend the Festival of Speed will be able to attest to that, final design details will remain secret for now with the auto masked in the black, red and white colours of Toyota Gazoo Racing.

The BMW version will be available as a roadster, the Supra as a coupé only, and Toyota SA says it will be released in South Africa in the first half of 2019.

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing also competes at the highest worldwide level in the FIA World Rally Championship with the Yaris WRC, claiming two victories in its debut season in 2017 and scoring a win on Rally Argentina and a number of podium finishes so far this year.
